Meet the Author

Michael Scott (1789-1835) was the son of a Glasgow merchant. His frequent ocean trips to manage estates in Jamaica led to his first book, Tom Cringle’s Log, which was serialized in Blackwood’s magazine in 1829. His fiction was published anonymously and Scott was not known as an author until after his death.
